This week, Grammy-Award winning artist, best-selling author, entrepreneur and social activist Lecrae dropped a brand new track titled “Deep End.” In speaking openly about the inspiration behind this personal song, Lecrae shared on social media, “A couple years ago my childhood trauma came to a head. I felt abandoned and turned my back on everything and everyone I loved, including God… I wanted a transactional escape from my pain, depression, and anxiety. God is not transactional though, he’s relational.”
“I began my journey of restoration. As we approached 2020 I was positive that this would be a phenomenal year, only to find myself with more problems, more issues and more unrest,” Lecrae continued. “2020 has been a difficult year. I have found myself in immense pain over the past couple months from the affects of the pandemic to the perpetuation of injustice and racism in America. As I navigate my struggles, I am realizing that restoration is ongoing. It’s not a season, it’s a lifestyle. Restoration is choosing to walk with God continually as you walk through a world with deep rooted, damaged flesh.”
You can hear “Deep End” streaming below and download it on iTunes today. The track is to be featured on Lecrae’s upcoming album, Restoration, with a release date to be announced.
